Gilroy passed away during the night just a couple of days before Christmas. He appeared to be eating and drinking fine. He and Luna will getting along better than ever. He was singing and chirping and appeared healthy.
I found him during the night, and Luna was nearby.
Since then Luna appears fine and is singing and eating and drinking. She does appear kind of worn. Her age should be around 12 years old. She had a band on her when I adopted her in 2000 from the Peninsula Humane Society that said her birthdate was in 1998. I am not sure if I am going to get her a new friend. I wouldn't want the bird to be alone soon after he arrived. I might wait to get a bonded pair at another time.
This is from Chris, who took care of Gilroy and Luna for me from May 2009 to September 2009.
"So sorry to hear about Gilroy, I know you did everything you could. I am glad to hear he was happy and singing right up until the very end :-) They were a pleasure to watch and listen to... Hope everything else is going well and that you're re-uniting pets and people everywhere :-)
Gilroy was blessed to have you as a mommy. He's probably telling all his angel birdie friends about you now..."
